    That's ridiculous. Legally, I don't think there's anything that has to be done but you should be pointing out the health and safety problems to your senior team. If they still insist on the silly plan or shutting the computers down then it depends on how militant you are - I'm sure they'd reconsider if you get NO coursework complete and therefore get a 0% pass rate at whatever GCSE equivalent course you run. At the very least you should be warning them that this situation could occur if nothing is done about the temperature situation.

    There is not a lot you can do as there is no legal maximum on temperature, however it would eb wise to contact your union rep and ask for guidance to get this solved because your management teams route is naive. Once again I would advise you to get it down in writing from whoever is calling the shots on this one as to what they expect you to do. People often falter when they are asked to put pen to paper. Don't really understand the gripe about not putting the kit in when a couple of these bad boys will do the job for most classrooms and tehy are not exactly expensive to solve the problem.

    You have to get a "professional" in to do them though because you might hurt yourself using an SDS drill and masonary bits to make the holes in the wall big enough. Health and Safety squad at work again.....
